This episode opens with the Alphas raiding a business and Nina using her power to push people for information. They kick down door after door, even taking people out of their bed, in an attempt to find out what is going on. Kat is involved in the raids though Bill does hold her back from going first. Clay walks into Rosen’s office to hand him fresh leads, but Rosen feels that this approach is scattershot. Rosen looks down the list and sees the name Apple Blossom and we get a flash to a farmhouse. Clay asks if anything jumps out and Rosen lies and says no. Rosen approaches Hicks and tells him that they need to head to the farmhouse, because if there is anything there that leads to Parish, they need to get there before Clay and his team. From this, Cameron surmises that Rosen does not trust Clay’s people. Rosen replies, “no I don’t. We both know how Parish can twist people’s loyalties.” Hicks grabs his coat and says that the place is only a few hours away. Rosen says that he would like to go but his presence would be missed and so he approaches Kat to be Cameron’s back up. Kat is super excited because this is her first reconn mission. Rosen tells her that there is more involved than recon, because Cameron is grieving and so he wants Kat to keep him on task. Gary interrupts the conversation to say that the company who makes the photo stimulators for Parish just exported something. Nina points out that the senator shut down August Medical and Gary says it’s not the same company. Gary says that this is a hot lead and asks Bill to give him a ride to the hospital after work. When Rosen asks why he needs to go to the hospital, Gary reveals that his mother was in a car accident. Rosen doesn’t even pause to console Gary and he has to know how hard this would be for Gary to process.
Hicks and Kat are looking through binoculars at the farmhouse which Rosen directed them to. Kat is making a video diary of the experience and this is irritating Hicks. A man leaves the farmhouse and Kat notes that he is an ex military type and that she is forced to make her assessment at a distance because Hicks is not sharing the binoculars. When he drives off, Kat an Hicks decide to move in closer to investigate. Kat picks the lock and when they enter guns drawn, they come across a man watching television. When they ask him his name he says that his name is Mitchell and he has to be there because according to Stanton Parish he is very important.
Mitchell is handcuffed and rambling. They call Rosen who says that if Parish is keeping Mitchell locked up and guarded in farmhouse, so he must be important. Rosen instructs them to bring Mitchell in quickly and quietly.
Back at the office, Senator Charlotte Burton knocks on Rosen’s door and says that she will be acting as the senate liaison to the Parish task force. Rosen invites her in and she asks if they have a lead. Rosen blows it off as one of hundreds and says that they are literally drowning in them. Burton pauses and stares at Nina as she walks by the office and Rosen has to draw her attention back in. Burton then asks about where Parish might be vulnerable. Rosen responds that Parish is playing his cards very close to his chest and Burton says that everyone has an achilles heel. She then asks to be brought up to speed and Rosen offers to take her to the conference room. Before they leave, Burton pauses and tells Rosen that she knows what he did and if the brain scans hadn’t found their way to her neurologist, she isn’t sure that she would be here today and that she owes him her life.
Rosen is not impressed and finds Nina to tell her that she left a paper trail behind which Burton followed directly to him. There goes Rosen again showing his strong moral ethics. The woman would have lost her mind because he encouraged Nina to push her. Nina points out that they don’t want her blood on their hands. Rosen says that it is not his blood he is concerned about and that when she puts the pieces together, the two of them could end up in jail. Rosen instructs Nina to push Burton and send her home. Nina points out that they don’t know what this could do to her, but Rosen says that they have other concerns right now. Nina asks if this means that Burton is an acceptable casualty and so Rosen tells Nina that she should leave. Nina says that she is busy with interrogations right now but Rosen responds that they don’t know if Burton seeing Nina is going to trigger her memory and that this is a risk he is not willing to take. Rosen says that as soon as he can find a way to move Burton off the investigation he will let Nina know. Isn’t he a great moral leader everyone?
Gary is in the hospital with Bill and he is not happy because the last time he was in a hospital he lost Anna again and that he doesn’t want to stay there. Bill says that no one likes hospitals and that this is about his mother. Gary points out that his mother is still unconscious and that he has a hot lead to follow up and so Bill tells him to work from there. Gary says that he cannot work from there and that that he doesn’t like it. Bill tells him to chill and have a seat and that he is tried from being up half the night with his wife driving the baby around. Suddenly, Gary stands up and says that he has found the shipment that arrives in New York from Parish’s factory but he cannot read the manifest because it is all in Chinese.
On the way back with Mitchell, Kat is video documenting again and says that Hicks reeks of fear and the breakfast burrito he ate a few hours ago. In frustration, Hicks threatens to crash the car if they don’t shut up. Kat says that she is sorry about Dani and is there for him, if he wants to talk about it. Mitchell pipes up and adds that Dani is dead and he is responsible for her death. Hicks turns to Michell and asks what the hell he is saying, just as someone with a gun shoots at their car. Hicks struggles to keep the car under control and a man jumps off the bridge and onto the hood. Hicks stops suddenly and he man goes flying. When Hicks gets out of the car to check on the assailant he believes that he is dead because his head is twisted at an odd angle. Hicks grabs Mitchell and drags him off saying that they have to get off the road and he has to call for back up. The assailant wakes up and untwists his neck.
